By A Customer on 20 Sept. 2001
Though only 107 pages, it's good to see the king of confessional journalism get his teeth into something substantial. As might be expected Leith is at his most solipsistic and disgusting in this tale of his trip to the dentist but his observations in identifying something rotten in the state of being British are spot on. Some of his arguments are more thought provoking than entirely persuasive but this is never less than a enjoyable, clever and laugh-out-loud read.

This was very quick to read and a little disappointing after his last book about being overweight which I found really amusing and had some very useful information which I followed and have lost a little weight. I think the teeth book may have come out first. I learned one thing though from British Teeth which is never bother to have a tooth crowned it is excrutiatingly painful and very expensive so if I ever need one I will insist on an extraction instead. British teeth is loosely about the class system in Britain which is something I find a bit dull as I am working class and don't feel the need to pretend to be otherwise! If you come from Hull I guess you may find it a bit odd as there's a joke in it that says where's the strangest place you've had sex and the answer is Hull. I guess if you live in Hull you have sex there all the time! This is a great book to leave in a dentists waiting room if you are a sadist! By the time the dentist sees you you will be running out of the door and will, very probably, have read it as it is very short like I said.
